  • Rachel Westbury stunned Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield when she revealed she wanted to carry other women's babies 'forever' but viewers were quick to praise her on Twitter.

    Although some women love pregnancy, others struggle with how much it changes their body.

    Rachel Westbury is firmly in the first camp and enjoys being pregnant so much that she says she’ll carry other women’s babies for as long as she can.

    Speaking on This Morning yesterday with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield, Rachel revealed she is currently 34 weeks with her fourth surrogacy and feels almost addicted to carrying other people’s babies.

    She gushed: ‘If I could, I would do it forever. Yet I think my family would disown me. I would love to do it again, after this one I will see where I am.’

    For her first two surrogacy pregnancies Rachel donated her own eggs, so there is a biological connection between her and the children.

    Mum-of-three Holly asked how Rachel copes with this and if she ever feels an attachment but Rachel, who has her own 13-year-old son, explained that seeing the child complete another family all the emotion ‘goes away’.

    I spy with my little eye an extra little hand 👀 So we have been keeping a very special secret! We are delighted to share with you that we have had a baby girl….welcome to the world Colette (Coco) Josephine Williams!! 💕💕 It has been a very long and difficult path to get here, which is why we have kept it on the down low. Family comes in all forms, and this little lady, who is biologically ours, was carried by an incredible surrogate mother, to whom we will be eternally grateful. We are over the moon to have this beautiful baby girl in our lives and so blessed that we live in a world which makes this possible. As with Teddy and Charlie, we ask that you respect Coco’s privacy and allow us to grow into our new team of 5! #TeamWilliams
